The ability to fully customize monsters - not just their stats and abilities, but also their behavior. Jeff said that, for example, you could have a monster that likes to specifically target your spellcasters. This system has so many possibilities. It will be especially nice to actually be able to CHOOSE which spells the enemies use. Like you could have a monster that's specifically designed to bless, haste and heal.

This will really help low-level spellcasters be able to hurt the party rather than repetitive castings of Minor Haste while it watches itself die.
I can see this adding a whole new dimension to tactics, for both designers and players, if it really works.
